|Scientific Name:||Hylarana garoensis (Boulenger, 1920)|
Rana danieli Pillai and Chanda, 1977
Rana garoensis Boulenger, 1920
|Taxonomic Notes:||This species includes Rana danieli following the recent revision by Ao et al. 2003. Further taxonomic studies of this taxon are required, as it might be a synonym of Clinotarsus alticola (A. Ohler pers. comm.). Specimens referred to Rana danieli from Nepal are now referred to Hylarana chitwanensis.|
|Red List Category & Criteria:||Least Concern ver 3.1|
|Assessor(s):||Sushil Dutta, Annemarie Ohler, Saibal Sengupta, Sabitry Bordoloi, Debjani Roy|
|Reviewer(s):||Global Amphibian Assessment Coordinating Team (Simon Stuart, Janice Chanson and Neil Cox)|
Listed as Least Concern in view of its wide distribution, presumed large population, and because it is unlikely to be declining fast enough to qualify for listing in a more threatened category.
|Range Description:||This species occurs in Nagaland, Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh and Assam, in northeastern India. Reports of the species from Manipur by Dutta (1997) require verification. It has an altitudinal range of 40-1,000m asl.|

|Population:||It is a locally abundant species, however the population is believed to be declining.|
|Current Population Trend:||Decreasing|
|Habitat and Ecology:||It is associated with tropical forest, shrubland and grasses of hilly areas. It is believed to breed in streams, although this requires verification. It is not known if it can adapt to modified habitats.|
|Major Threat(s):||The general threats to this species are ongoing localized deforestation for subsistence use and the development of tourism facilities in areas such as the Garo Hills.|
|Conservation Actions:||It is not known if it occurs in any protected areas. It is protected by national legislation.|
